This seminar will address a cluster of related issues concerning values of various kinds and the arts. We will investigate the nature of aesthetic value, how (and whether) aesthetic value differs from value of other kinds (e.g., moral value), how it is related to other kinds of value (e.g., Do moral failings of a work of art affect its aesthetic value?), and what other-than-aesthetic values works of art, or some of them, might be especially well suited to serve. We will also consider worries about dangerous effects that works of art may have. Readings will be taken from a variety of mostly contemporary and recent sources.
